With the aid of a new “index of rare U3A subject groups” compiled by Arthur Maltby of Deeside & Wirral U3A, I have ascertained there are another 7 model railway groups attached to local u3A’s.
The full list is
Bedford, Buxton, Castle Bromwich, Emsworth, Epping Forest, Kings Lynn, Liphook & March
Most are informal groups and meet at members houses; two possibly three are building layouts and one Castle Bromwich is affiliated to a club ( Birmingham MRC )
I have written an e-mail to Emsworth- the closest to us to see if we can exchange ideas and perhaps in the future have a joint session.
